-Tonight's WWE Smackdown television show features World Hvt. Champion Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan in a rematch from Extreme Rules. The advertised main event of Randy Orton and Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan and Kane did not take place. However, Kane and Cody Rhodes team to face Randy Orton and Big Show. Join Ryan Kester for live coverage tonight beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT. Chris Shore and Jake Barnett have the night off, but they will return on Saturday with their weekly All Access podcast.
-UFC airs on FOX on Saturday night from East Rutherford, N.J. The main event of the show is Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller. Plus, Josh Koscheck faces Johnny Hendricks. Of the shows broadcast on FOX, it seems like this one has the least amount of buzz going into the show.
